This will be the 12th store of the chain in the Silesia region. It has been present on the Polish market since 1993.

“We carefully select the locations for our new stores. We always look for highly convenient places with strong reputations and good access. We know that Libero in Katowice will be an important point on the region’s retail map of the due to its location. Its strength will be in the interesting combination of shopping with the various options for spending free time offered by this modern centre,” claims Marta Słowikowska, the president of Silesia Jeans.

Libero will eventually comprise 45,000 sqm of retail and entertainment space when it opens later this year. More than 95 pct of the retail space has already been leased.
